Trivia questions, who wrote that song, when was the last time the Dead played Deer Creek, etc.

shows attended

I'm trying to piece together some of the shows I've been to. Anyone know the dates when Led Zepplin was playing Winterland and the Dead were playing the old Fillmore? How about the date for the Winterland show that Wavy Gravy announced from stage that refreshments were being passed around "take a sip and pass it on." I don't think a lot of people heard the "sip" part :-O!!!! Seems to me Mr. Gravy may have been in a bodycast, but then my vision was fluctuating somewhat. That show might have been the Indians on Alcatraz Benefit. Any help appreciated!

flubbed lyrics

I have had cause to wonder from time to time which song Bobby flubbed the lyrics on the most times. From a very uninformed position I'd take a guess at Truckin'. I'll bet someone out there knows which song and how many times.

Vegas 5/30/92 and Deep Elem question

bt.etree.org and www.archive.org both have the Las Vegas show. It is not in the Vindex, surprisingly, here on dead.net.
Deep Elem was performed electrically after the October 1980 acoustic runs from San Francisco to New York. The 2 nights in New Orleans did not have a Deep Elem!! Check Lakeland FL from 11/28/80 sounds great. GD archivist David LeMieux just featured parts of the Glen Falls 4-14-82 show: Deep Elem is played here too. Use deadlists.com to search for the show, or the song, of your choice.
New Speedway Boogie indeed was brought back in 1991!! 2/19/91, at first, with several more dates to follow, including Deer Creek and the Palace. I heard one in Salt Lake in 1995.

William Letizia The Dead played 14 shows in Vegas from 1991-1995. Where can I obtain copies of these shows, especially the May 30th, 1992 show? Any information would be appreicated. I am new to this site. Thank you.

Rhunter08: yes, excellent

Rhunter08: yes, excellent live versions of New Speedway Boogie from the early 90's. Years tend to blend together but I want to say '91 is when they broke it out. Deer Creek if my memory serves me correctly (not when they broke it out- when I saw it). i saw it on the west coast too that fall, I'm pretty sure. But yes, NSB was played electric, usually into Drums.

When, where, and how many times.....

Hello, sorry if this has already been answered. I tried searching, but kept getting the unable to display page.

Anyway, I'm looking for some form of database that shows when and where, as well as the total number of times each song was played I'm looking for different versions of different songs to learn Phil's parts from (I know, daunting task trying to emulate such a rare talent). I have a fairly large collection of shows in digital format, and looking at each setlist is getting to be a bit tedious.

Thanks in advance for the help,
Rex

PS, since I'm posting in a trivia section, I may as well ask; are there are electric versions of Deep Elem Blues or New Speedway Boogie? (Performed by GD of course)

2 questions

Hi! Has there been any official mention of setlists from the 1968 shows that were found in the vault for Road Trips Vol. 2 No. 2?

Also, I was wondering if anyone can shed light on any of the "pitch" inperfections that have been discovered on official releases... I know that I have noticed some on the FILLMORE 69 patches and the "Alligator" on the RTV2N2 patch...
